Subject: My 49th and Last Grateful Dead Show...
I was the SUPER-Tall Guy (who Gumby danced With 2nd Set - Can You Believe He Had That Furry Suit On In That Heat?) I was Foolish Enough To Choose To Trade My Extra Tickets For Herbs INSTEAD Of Giving A Couple People A Miracle; and As A Result, Somebody Dosed My Gallon Water Jug to teach me a lesson... Again, I shared so little of my water that I Was Slammed With A VERY CONNECTED, Spiritual Experience (Know What I Mean?), beyond my control (or my choice!) I went to the show on the 27th too, and thought THAT SUCKED In Comparison To The 28th (of Course, I was a LOT More Connected On The 28th - NOT BY CHOICE!) Anyway, As This Was My 49th (& Last!) Grateful Dead Show, I WOULD LIKE TO ATTEMPT TO RE-LIVE IT, No Matter HOW Many Comments About How This Was The Very Worst Show EVER Get Written! Out of All 49 Shows I've Been To, May 27, '95 Was The WORST For ME!

carbon copy what Mr. Lobster12 said.

P.S. - This is about as bad as it got. OUCH!

P.S.S. - Not to offend anyone who enjoyed this show, it's all subjective, I believe that more than probably any Deadhead out there, but this is absolutely the worst Dead concert I have ever heard. I am not saying it is the worst ever, just the worst I have heard. And I have heard my share. If it does something for you, more power to ya. It doesn't do anything for me, but make me sad at how bad things had gotten at this point for all parties involved, that being the band and the crowd. To my knowledge, this is the only 1 star rating I have given to ANY GD concert (of about 300 reviews), and unfortunately, it is pretty deserved in my opinion.

dog shit.

very disturbed to hear the dead were starting to money grub and pulled the downloads. Now they have suddenly made an incredible "about face" - thanks to heads who frequent this site! If they have concerns maybe they should start yanking garbage like this show off and leave some of the genius from over the previous years for us to appreciate. Or, maybe they should have realized that at this point they were delivering a subpar product and not charged its'fans night in and night out. Sorry for the soap box, but for the band I love to pull this and make this website the culprit is pretty bush.

Subject: very sad
This show is sad. Listen to Crazy Fingers...Jerry blows pretty much every single verse even with a teleprompter to help him :(

Subject: Chuck didn't Suck - the Dead did
The Dead sucked for the most part but for 72 years of age or whatever Chuck Berry was - he rocked. He played about 15 songs in 30 minutes and we laughed and had a great time during his set. I was bummed Weir and/or Jerry didn't come on and jam with him. Maybe they were afraid to.

The only things worth mentioning from the Dead's sets: the dreamy, killer version of Row Jimmy and a solid Brown Eyed Women. Black Peter was good too.

The second set ranged from awful to mediocre.

This was a simply horrible venue and it was about 100 degrees. That didn't help matters.

Subject: perfect weather
Can't imagine a more beutiful day. I give a star for the sun and breeze alone. Chuck Berry was atrocious however. I think it was this day - he stopped 45 seconds into promised land. Everyone was like -what the hell guy? and pretty embarassed for him.

The set lists speak for themselves. They played with the sound during both of these shows so it adds to the breezy/floating quality.

Subject: Fare thee well
I got off the bus after this one. Solid, laid back show in a great setting. A few ugly flubs, but for '95, the performances are reasonable.
